See the following example reviews to see how easy it is to incorporate many aspects of the product into one review! 

πŸ’„Makeup – lipstick
I found my new favorite liquid lipstick! Packaging wise, it is sleek and sturdy. It is super easy to get a precise application with the pointed doe foot applicator. This is the perfect shade of rosy nude; it is very wearable and compliments my skin tone (olive with cool undertones) very well. It is pigmented and long wearing, but not drying at all. Whenever I wear this lipstick to work, I get compliments!

πŸ’§Skincare – face wash
I use this face wash every night after I remove most of my makeup. It feels creamy on the face and melts away any leftover product. My face feels clean but not stripped after I rinse it off. A little goes a long way for this face wash, an 80ml bottle lasted me a good 2 months, so I think it is worth the price! I’ll be repurchasing soon for sure. 

πŸ’†‍♀️Hair – hair mask
Since I bleached my hair 3 month ago, hair masks have become a staple in my hair routine. I use this deep conditioning treatment once a week to rejuvenate my dry & damaged hair after a long week. It is easy to rinse off and my hair immediately feels smoother and more hydrated. It doesn't leave the hair too slippery to style either, just healthier and smelling great. This is my holy grail hair mask, I’m on my second tub already. 

πŸ’…Nails – nail top coat
I get a lot of gel manicures and sometimes my nails just need a break. I use this topcoat to keep them still looking shiny and protected. It dries completely within 10 minutes, which is great for people on the go like me. I usually have this topcoat on no matter what and it holds up well, even when I’m using cleaning products. It also goes over regular nail polish beautifully, and I use it with many different brands of nail polish I own.

    I am soooo excited to be a part of this community and cant wait to be able to review my first products!! I have been wearing makeup for 35years yikes! And have seen so many cool and not so cool trends throughout the years and I have tried majority of those trends but I always come back to my classic look for me which always has 1 pop of color either eyeshadow, eyeliner or lips. I will say I'm new to the whole contouring and trying to get the right shades and looks. Anyway hello and good luck to everyone getting cool products to review!

    These guidelines are fabulous!! I have done many product reviews throughout the last 5 or so years now on other websites...yet I had never thought of using some of these descriptive words, explained my actions/experience as much, nor had I tried being as detailed as you are in so many different ways. Thanks a bunch!!
